New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 4.4
SynopsisThe remote antivirus service is vulnerable to a denial of service attack.
DescriptionAccording to its version, the clamd antivirus daemon on the remote host is earlier than 0.94.2. There is a recursive stack overflow involving the JPEG parsing code in such versions. A remote attacker may be able to leverage this issue to cause the application to recursively scan a specially crafted JPEG, which will eventually cause it to crash.
SolutionUpgrade to ClamAV 0.94.2 or later.
